Wednesday's Words on a Friday
The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.
This month the prompts are supplied by ME and can be found right here.

For months Aunt Betty had been adamant that coral lampshades with beads were what she wanted in her living room. Kim had moved heaven and earth to find the closest match to the magazine picture Aunty had shown her.
This morning, Aunt Betty had opened her birthday gift, declared them "pretty" and spent the next hour enthusing about her newest idea. She would paint the living room red, get some lacquered end tables and have gold lamps with black silk shades.
"The Japanese look," she'd said. "I'm sure it will be very popular with the book club girls. Blinking away tears of frustration, Kim vowed to never buy another birthday gift. Aunt Betty could have a box of chocolates from now on.
